Improve Decision Making and Increase Productivity
Population growth, limited resources, workforce impact from pandemics, financial upheaval and unpredictable climate conditions pressure agricultural businesses like never before. Today’s farmers must contend with increasing water shortages or floods, shrinking land availability, and fluctuating costs as they work to feed the world. Given that the world’s population is expected to multiply rapidly through 2050, farmers must increase food production by 70% if everyone is going to be fed.1
The increasing adoption of smart farming techniques — leveraging sensors, smart gateways and monitoring systems to collect and analyze information — helps inform decisions that drive productivity improvements, even under adverse circumstances. Agriculture IoT application developers and system integrators have a unique opportunity to build connected agricultural solutions that can lead to improved yields, reduced costs and a well-fed world.
Precision farming technology helps farmers make more informed decisions while opening the door to greater automation of agricultural labor. Farms are living and breathing business environments where even the smallest changes can significantly impact the business’s health and productivity.
The Role of IoT Devices in the Next Generation of Agriculture
Innovative uses of IoT applications in agriculture are driving opportunities for forward-thinking operations to increase yields while improving food safety and delivery. From crop and livestock monitoring to water management, farm-to-fork regulatory compliance and more, sensors, gateways and modules work together to provide accurate real-time data that is collected and analyzed for more informed decisions, cost rationalization, and streamlined regulatory compliance.
Stay abreast of conditions anywhere, anytime and across the entire farm with remote sensing technology and connected devices. Sensors generate real-time data that can be analyzed to evaluate current practices and make improvements for greater efficiency and effectiveness. Respond to inter- and intra-field variability, manage irrigation and monitor crops and livestock with confidence.
Fine-tune responsiveness to crop and livestock variabilities through real-time data gathering, robust analytics and connected devices. From soil conditions to livestock monitoring to water control, IoT agriculture solutions help farmers precisely understand the enterprise’s operations. Optimize your processes and put your data to work for sustainable growth and outcomes.
UAV Crop and Livestock Monitoring
Oversee operations in any location using crewless aerial vehicles (UAVs) and optimize yields based on real-time monitoring and predictive data analytics. IoT devices support crop and livestock health through monitoring and alerts that allow farmers to act at the first sign of an issue and to adjust care based on changing needs.
Promote improved livestock health and keep track of equipment through IoT-enabled tracking and monitoring solutions. Connected sensors in livestock wearables allow farmers to monitor vital signs, locations, reproductive cycles and more. Improve animal health and reduce waste for optimal yields.
Reduce water waste, keep crops healthy and improve yields through connected, sensor-based water monitoring and management. Sensor data and analytics help farmers manage irrigation in a way that keeps up with demand while conserving natural resources. Sustainable practices increase profitability and conserve water over time.
